Everyone can take part, and the unique design of the competition means that even the most junior beginner can get on the mat with national and international champions in a fun and friendly first group stage. As things progress, the pressure mounts and both the competition and the noise become truly intense as things progress to the under 11, junior, and senior finals.
Booking on line gets you preferred seeding in the group stages, and costs only £8.95 instead of the £12 you'll pay on the day (if there are still places left on the day, that is).
Entry is open to students of LCTKD, and invited guests.
